Fashion: Summer essentials for guys and girls part 1

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to lis ten items that are classic summer dressing essentials. These 10 pieces would become the stable of your summer wardrobe.

First up: Lightweight Button-Downs

Girls: I find a girl extremely attractive when they're wearing a button-down with the sleeves rolled up and half buttoned wearing some sort of tank underneath. The look is easy and effortless. I can see a million variations of how to wear this look, with long tresses of wavy hair, with a Charlie Chaplin hat, with some long charm necklace, tucked inside white/khaki shorts, untucked with dark skinny jeans, with a skirt with boots, with flip flop, with lace-ups...etc

Guys: There are a lot of slim-cut choices out in the market. Wear a denim shirt on its own with a slim-fitted pair of khakis or with shorts. Or go bold casual, pair it with printed tee and crazy shorts in bright summer colors. And for the office, pair the shirt with a white or khaki cotton two-button suit, leave the tie at home, and you got yourself a light-hearted summer office attire. Don't forget to trade your lace-ups with an easy loafers, or if you're wearing a linen suit, why not try a pair of dressy leather sandals or flip-flops.
